The intent of this project was to create a community of learn-ers to facilitate the implementation of computer technologies in the elementary school curriculum. Our project plan was designed to lessen or eliminate common barriers to technolo-gy integration through implementation of a "bottom-up" ap-proach to technology training. Elementary students were pro-vided with specialized technology training each week in an effort to increase technology use in the classroom setting. By training a cadre of students in specific technologies to be-come computer "experts," teachers and peers had ready ac-cess to a technology resource. This paper describes our ap-proach to teacher technology development through the use of student trainers. The benefits and limitations of this approach are discussed along with a description of the revisions made during the project's second year based on evaluative data from key participants.
